Devastating earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

A strong earthquake rattled New Zealand at 4:35 a.m. local time Saturday morning. The USGS posted a magnitude of 7.2.

The quake epicenter was four miles south-southeast from Christchurch, New Zealand, on the nation's south island. Local media reports there have been strong aftershocks and power outages throughout the city.

There is a lack of power, drinking water and food.

As Strawberry Singh said, the Second Life community has a tremendous capacity for raising funds for humanitarian efforts. What we want is to help. We can make a donation to GardenCityRelief Resident (which is an alt of Hibiscus Flossberg set up to receive funds for relief efforts), purchasing Puarangi Designs products (funds will go directly to New Zealand Red Cross) or supporting the GardenCityRelief fundraising benefit. If you are a designer and you want to support, you can offer your item for sale. For more information, read

What I want is to support GardenCityRelief with some items for sale and with a banner on my blog. I hope that will help.
